    As I suspected....

    Dear Paul,

    VIP has a brand new monthly reward for you!

    Here at VIP Casino we are constantly looking at ways of giving you the best deals. And now, due to unprecedented customer feedback, we are changing our monthly bonus and introducing brand new rewards for all players.This new reward continues to offer unbeatable value whilst giving you even greater choice and abolishing the 30x wagering requirements.

    Monthly game reward increased to $90!

    Our previous Match Deposit offered you a maximum of $60 - this new reward will give you the chance to get your hands on $90!! That's right, we're offering you more money! Just enter our weekly game promotions and you'll have the chance to receive up to $90 playing Blackjack, Roulette, Caribbean Stud Poker, Video Poker, 9 Line Slots and many more games. There's something for everyone.

    Simply wager the required amount on the specified games and the cash is yours!

    We know that you enjoy rewards for playing and will welcome the increased flexibility which this new reward will give you. Taking this into consideration, this new Monthly Game Reward will replace the Match Deposit Bonus."

    Dont quite understand this (got this in an email, website isnt updated yet) but looks like they are probably doing away with the 100% Monthly Match and replacing it with some supposedly better bonus, yeah right. LOL. I hope i am wrong.

    Here's a copy/paste of a live chat I JUST had with them:

    You are now chatting with Margot
    Margot: Thanks for contacting us at VIP - how may I help you today?
    none: Hi...are these the WR's for Blackjack?
    You must wager the total amount deposited (purchase + promotional bonus) fifteen times in the casino (sportswagers are excluded) before cashing-in of the bonus will be allowed
    Margot: Please hold one moment
    none: ok
    Margot: That is correct.
    Margot: also make sure to read the following:
    Margot: Equal betting is considered irregular gaming for bonus purposes only. Excludes roulette and craps and baccarat. (we will remove the bonus when Baccarat, Roulette and Craps are being played)
    none: Great..TY...BYE

    Anyone sussed out what the new T&C's for this are yet?
    I can't find anything on their website.
    I'm very worried by the word 'chance' - does this mean the bonus is not automatic, but that you can 'win' it somehow?

    Are we talking about You must register/login in order to see the link. here?

    I just checked their website and the only change I can see is that they updated their monthly bonus to say November instead of October (which makes sense).

    They're still listing a 100% match up to $60, with a wagering requirement of 30X the bonus money.

    Am I confused on the casinos here? :confused:

    as how I see it they removed the monthly bonus. Only a sign-up is left now:

    We ensure that all new players are rewarded for your first ever deposit of $25 or more, up to a maximum of $60. This bonus is not available to existing players or secondary accounts.

    Should you choose to play with us this November you'll get a 100% welcome bonus up to $60*! This will automatically be credited to your account with your first ever deposit of the month (EST) for $25 or more.

    I got an email about it. Wager $400 in video poker before 15th and get a $30 bonus or something like that. There is now a bonus code option when you deposit.

    Did anyone play the cyberstud tournament last night there? It seemed very strange. I was in third place with a couple of minutes to go (places 3-7 win the third prize of $100) and tried to go for the second prize amount. I didn't actually see anyone else on the table although it looked like at times one or two people were playing. I won the first bet to set me up to go for the 2nd prize without risking a 3rd prize payment and checked the scores again which hadn't changed much. With less than 30 seconds to go I made a much bigger bet which won. This would have taken me to second ($500 prize) as I'd checked the places just before. I didn't see anyone else at the table or see their cards but it looked like at least one person was playing because I had to wait a while for the cards to be dealt (these could have been invisible for the other players, I don't know, but in blackjack tournaments you can see the other player's cards).

    I then went to check the final table and suddenly it looked like that three others made big bets at the end and won, so I ended 4th (with the same prize as 3rd). The dealer had a pair of 6's so it wasn't as if it was very easy to beat (I had a pair of 9's). As I made a bet right at the end, it meant that the other three must have won too and beat the dealers pair of 6's! I'm not sure of who was in the places before but second was on around 4300 and first was 5400 so it looks like the leaders made big bets at the end too which seems a bit unnecessary. I don't think I had much time at all to make another bet but this is how it ended! I just don't understand how I couldn't really see anyone playing at the end when apparently they were playing!

    P.S. Just before my final bet with less than a minute to go I was third on around 3240 and won 1200 on the final bet. This would have given me second place at the time.

    Actually, since my previous post I got an e-mail from them which sheds some light on this new 'bonus'!

    There is not a deposit bonus any more, you have to wager a set amount on a particular game to qualify for a smaller bonus (which then has no WR afterwards). Three bonuses per month.

    i.e. The first one is Video Poker - wager $400 and get a $30 bonus.

    This will be followed by Blackjack and slots ones later in the month.
    (Wonder what the BJ WR will be!)

    This is a similar change in tack to that taken by Omni casino, and is surely the second nail in the coffin of all future Crypto deposit bonuses. :(

    In the original mail they said:
    Hands up all those who think this change has any slight remote connection to any feedback from any customer!

    Any hands?

    I can't see any hands....! :(

    whenever ANY company says the words "due to customer feedback we are changing xxx" you know that:

    1, it will be a change for the worse
    2, no customers were consulted at all
    3, see point 1 :D :D

    Actually, the more I think about it, the less bad it becomes!
    Previously it was x30 WR, so for a $90 bonus you had to wager $2,700.

    The first game is only $400 WR for $30 = x13.3

    If the other games have the same sort of requirement, it's actually a MUCH better deal! :thumbsup:

    Suits me as well, because I have never been a 'Blackjack-jockey' - I have always played a variety of different games, so I'm actually starting to look forward to this new challenge! :cool:

    Though psychologically, starting off with free cash and trying not to lose it seems a thousand times better than trying to use your own funds to earn the free cash!

    Well, if it's only VP and only a measly $30 bonus they could easily afford to have an even lower wr. By the way, the reason no MG casino would ever offer a monthly bonus with Intercasino-like terms is the autoplay.

    The closest is 32Red - even despite their very high wr for such a small bonus they've changed the software to have a 2 minimum bet at BJ.

    New Monthly Game Reward

    A bit more info about VIP's new Monthly Game Reward - We decided to introduce this as some players commented that they would prefer not to have a 30X wagering requirement before cashing out their bonus. We have made it much more straightforward now as you only have to wager a specified amount before your reward is automatically credited into you account.

    We will include most of our games and there will be at least one Blackjack promotion per month. Around 300 players have received these new Game Rewards already, and the early signs are that these are proving quite popular.

    Hopefully, this clears up a few of your issues.

    Blimey! Do all the big casino's managers read this forum???
    I'd better be careful what I say! :eek:

    Thanks for the post Kate - looking forward to trying to prize that bonus money from your grasp! ;)
